The Bristol Big 'Uns are a group of people who enjoy fantasy, science fiction and historical games. We tend to play mostly tabletop war games but you will sometimes see CCGs, CMGs, RPGs or board games. If this sounds like a hobby you currently enjoy then why not come along or join our forum.
The club is based at Iron Acton, between Bristol and Yate, in the recently refurbished Parish Hall and is held Sunday evenings from 6 pm until 10 pm. There are tables and chairs available plus various sized boards and terrain for Warhammer type games. There is a 'tuck shop' happily providing crisps, chocolate and fizzy drinks plus tea and coffee at a reasonable price. Use the contact tab above for more information on how to get to the club.
The club has a web-based forum for discussion and for arranging games. Use the forum tab above to introduce yourself and say hello. (Note that the forum is actively policed to keep spam and non-club related chit chat to a minimum).
